Did you know that rental units comprise half of the available housing in Eugene? A 2017 study by the University of Oregon Business Consulting Group identified that more than 6,000 of those rentals likely need energy upgrades.
We have a number of programs and resources that can help both the rental property owner and the occupant.
Rental property owners can take advantage of our zero-percent interest loans or our rebate programs for efficiency upgrades. This includes ducted and ductless heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, and windows and insulation.
Improving the efficiency of your rental can help attract and retain tenants and increase the value of your poperty.Learn more
To receive usage history for a property you own, but for which you are not the current EWEB account holder, we need the current account holder to provide verbal consent allowing us to release that information. Please have your tenant call 541-685-7000 during business hours to speak with customer service.
We want to help tenants and rental owners better understand the energy and water usage in their rental properties and possibly help lower monthly utility bills. The Home Energy Score is similar to a vehicle's miles-per-gallon rating. The score allows you to compare the energy performance of your home to other homes nationwide.
The Home Energy Score program is a partnership between EWEB, the University of Oregon's Department of Sustainability and the city of Eugene, staffed by interns from UO who are trained to become state-approved Home Energy Assessors.
Because the program is staffed by interns, we can offer it only for a limited time during the year. As of May 16, 2018 we have stopped taking new applications. Please check back later in the year, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter for program updates.
High-efficiency heat pumps are ideal for our mild Pacific Northwest climate.
An energy efficient ductless heat pump is cheaper to install and operate than any other heating system.
A home with proper insulation and high-performance windows keeps you comfortable and saves you money.
